Jets coach Todd Bowles sees no advantage playing Darrelle Revis
With the New York Jets (4-7) ready to host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon, it is very likely that former All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis will face his former team for his first game action as a member of the Chiefs. Jets coach Todd Bowles isn’t worried about anyone having too much of an advantage because of it.
Revis, who was signed last week by Kansas City, has played eight of his previous 10 seasons in the NFL as a member of the Jets.
In wake of the matchup with the Chiefs (6-5) at MetLife Stadium, Jets head coach Todd Bowles was asked whether he thought that Revis would have a significant advantage over his former team.
“Not really. It’s a different scheme,” Bowles said, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. “They have a lot of people there. Like I said, it’s a different scheme and he knows us as well. It’s a different scheme we’re playing. I’ve been on teams where you spend time worrying about a player and the other 10 guys kill you. We have to get ready for the Chiefs, not Darrelle.”
Revis has clearly seen a decline in his play over the last few seasons, but the seven-time Pro Bowler was brought in to make an impact right away for a Chiefs team that has lost five of its last six games.
In 140 career regular season games, Revis has tallied 29 interceptions, racked up 398 total tackles and made 137 pass deflections.
